What does sexuality have to do with gaming? What's the point of LGBT game conventions? Do same-sex romance options matter in games? And, can gamers find love on Grindr? My partner and I have traveled across America, interviewing over 100 queer gamers about navigating between subcultures, overcoming struggles, building communities, and changing gaming for the better. Through video highlights, meet dozens of queer gamers and find out how they play with pride in two sometimes-contradictory worlds.
